Follow these tips to refresh your home
Each new year gives you the
chance to reset and start new
routines. When you’re considering
new approaches to healthy living
- whether eliminating or adding habits
to improve your daily life - beginning
with your home is an optimal choice.
Your living environment has a
strong infl uence on your life, and it’s
worth evaluating how you can make
updates that create a positive space
for you and all that the new year will
bring. Consider these ideas to refresh
your home and simplify your housecleaning
routine so you can spend
more time focusing on your goals
START BY DECLUTTERING
It’s practically impossible to get excited
about a fresh start when you’re
surrounding by last year’s junk. Make
decluttering and purging unnecessary
items a top priority for your
refresh. Clear counters and tables
to create more inviting surfaces and
force yourself to assess which items
are worth keeping. Get rid of items
you don’t need by donating, selling or
disposing them. Tackle piles of things
you’ve carelessly tossed aside and fi nd
(or create) purposeful places for them
SIMPLIFY YOUR LAUNDRY
Whether it’s the frustration of having
no clean laundry or never-ending
baskets fi lled with clothes that need
folding, laundry is an area where
nearly every home can use a refresh.
Start with the basics to make laundry
easy and quick. A streamlined laundry
system starts with the right tools for
the job, such as all Mighty Pacs, which
are available in several varieties with
diff erent benefi ts and contain single
doses of detergent that release while
inside your machine, so you can simply
toss one in and start the load. If you
have sensitive skin, try all Free Clear,
the No. 1 recommended detergent
brand by dermatologists, allergists
and pediatricians for sensitive skin.
It’s gentle and works through tough
CREATE A FITNESS SPACE
One way to stay committed to a new
workout regimen is to create a place
where you enjoy spending time. Even
if you don’t have a room to dedicate to
fi tness, you can make a fi tness corner
feel more intentional and less like
an afterthought with some simple
changes. If possible, locate your fi tness
area near a window so you can soak up
the energy of natural light. Clear away
unnecessary items and make room for
the equipment or fl oor space you need.
Add inspiring posters or make frames
to hold your current workout guide.
Add storage for hand weights, resistance
bands and other small equipment
to create your own home gym.
